Term 3 - Week 2

This week Apple and Pears have been learning about ‘The Gingerbread Man.’ We have explored the text through the children’s interests and made our own gingerbread men. They really enjoyed cooking and decorating them!

We linked our maths to cooking and learnt about weighing.  The children explored how much ingredients they would need to make a gingerbread man after writing or labeling their own ingredient lists. They really enjoyed using the scales. This supported their mathematical language.

This term the children have expressed an interest in sinking and floating during exploring weight. So we carried out a sinking and floating experiments, where they really understood about different materials and the affect this has on the water. They also learnt some new vocabulary!

On Tuesday we had an exciting day! Rock Kidz came to our school and we all turned into Rock stars for the day! Apple and Pear class rocked!

Please see your children’s homework sheet for this week and any notices will be put up on the notice board outside our classrooms.

Please can you bring in your favourite book to link with our learning next week.

Thank you for your continued support.

Have a lovely weekend,

The EYFS Team.
